2 May 2012 Performance estimation of SAR using NIIRS techniques
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we present an overview of the National Image Interprability Rating Scale (NIIRS) for SAR im- agery. We map basic SAR image formation parameters into the NIIRS via an information theoretic framework. Preliminary results obtained from a pilot study are presented for human interpretablity of various SAR im- ages. Extensions to this work which include sensor exploitation algorithms and integration within the Pursuer environment are outlined .
